How to view a real-time preview of my form before sharing it?

A real-time preview of a form allows you to see exactly how the form will appear to your users.

Why is previewing your form before sharing important?

  1. Previewing helps you evaluate the user experience, ensuring that the form is visually appealing, easy to navigate, and effectively communicates your message. 
  2. With more users accessing forms on mobile devices, it's essential to ensure that your form is mobile-friendly. Real-time preview allows you to see how your form adapts to different screen sizes, ensuring a seamless experience for users on smartphones and tablets.
  3. You can confirm that your logo, color scheme, and overall design align with your brand guidelines, creating a professional and cohesive look.
  4. Interacting with the form before sharing allows you to test the functionality of your form. You can check if form fields are working as intended, helping to identify and rectify any issues before you share the form with your audience. 
  5. If your form includes validation rules or specific data entry formats, a real-time preview allows you to test these conditions.

How to preview the overall look of my form on different devices?

Zoho Forms offers a responsive design for your form, which means the forms you create can automatically adapt to different screen sizes.
There's no need to check your form separately on different devices. You can effortlessly preview how it looks with just a click of a button, seamlessly adjusting for desktop, mobile, and tablet displays. To do this,
  1. After building your form,  click the Preview icon    in the top-right corner of your form builder. 

    Click Preview Form

    A preview of your form will open up where you can see  how the theme will look on your desktop, tablet, and mobile before applying it to the form. You can switch to the other themes in the right panel and preview them on desktop, mobile, and tablet to find the one that best suits your needs and click Apply Theme.
